60 year anniversary of the Panarcadian Association of Melbourne and Victoria
Date - Saturday, 12 October 2019
In 2019, the Association celebrated its 60th anniversary, with celebrations culminating in the annual gala ball which was held on Saturday 12 October.
Around three hundred Arcadians and friends packed Merrimu Receptions for a night of music, dance and reminiscing.
In attendance was the then Consulate General of Greece to Melbourne, Arcadian, Dimitrios Michalopoulos. There were representatives from the Greek Community of Melbourne and Victoria, as well as representatives from many other Greek organisations.
A highlight of the evening was the announcement by Mr Andreas Andrianopoulos of his personal donation of $100, 000 towards the costs of production of the book, The Children of Pan: Arcadians in Australia.
